After the publication of the ESFRI roadmap in 2008, it was evident that all the selected environmental RIs would face similar challenges in their implementation and we identified the need for a closer collaboration.

This led to the onset of the ENVRI project (2011-2014) and currently continues within ENVRIplus (2015-2019).

These two projects are focusing on the integration of the European environmental research infrastructure landscape.

In addition to ENVRI and ENVRIplus, the EC has also funded the COOPEUS project (2012-2015) and COOP+ (2016-2018), thus extending the collaboration of environmental RIs beyond European borders (to US, Canada, Brazil and Australia).
